Brink. Foster has chaired the Arlington County School Board and Virginia State Board of Education.

Arlington County Republican Chairman Matt Wavro hailed Foster’s nomination, stating, “I am proud that Dave Foster has secured the Republican nomination for the 48th House District special election.

Matt Ames, Fairfax County GOP Chairman, enthusiastically welcomed Foster to the race, noting, “Dave Foster has demonstrated his commitment to serving the people of Virginia, particularly in the field of education.
